"Thou shall not (#thoushallnot)" is the top trending topic on Twitter on the morning of December 17.

Twitterers are adding their own commandments to the original 10 this morning as they instruct their followers on what "thou shall not" do. Though it's unclear if anyone is actually following the directions, users are quick to offer them.

"#Thoushallnot forget condoms cost $8 a box as opposed to 25% of your gross income going to child support" and "#thoushallnot say 'we need a change' [if you have] never voted in your whole life," proclaimed some of the Twitter contributors.

As the holiday nears, "Christmas" is on the rise in the trending topics, jumping two places to the number three spot. "Now playing" is also holding strong for the third day in a row at the number two position as users continue to tweet their current music and film choices.

"#Omgfacts" is also on the rise after it reappeared again on the list on December 15. The sporadically appearing trend is being used to share shocking or surprising facts that might cause someone to exclaim, "Oh my God!"
